Should i be concerned my heart rate is 115  resting but I have a cold wondering if that's why?

Some concern: If your rate is fast but regular, it may be due to some dehydration, which may be due to having a cold and not ingesting enough food and liquid. If it's fast and irregular, that needs to be sorted out, and soon. You may have atrial fib or some other abnormal rhythm. If this persists, or is irregular, you need to notify your doctor, especially if you have other symptoms such as dizziness or pain. ...Read more

Checking heart rate always. I take atenolol. It's always in normal range. I freak out if it reaches 80bpm. What should I do. This anxiety is terrible?

Checking heart rate always. I take atenolol. It's always in normal range. I freak out if it reaches 80bpm. What should I do. This anxiety is terrible?

See your doctor : In your case, I would reduce the frequency with which you are checking your heart rate. The normal heart rate is a range and depends on your activity level. Stop dwelling on your heart rate and start living your life. You are young and need to be enjoying your activities! You may need to see a therapist to help you with this. Talk to your doctor about your options. ...Read more

My heart rate is over 100. I take blood pressure medication. Should I be concerned? What should I do, if anything?

My heart rate is over 100.  I take blood pressure medication.  Should I be concerned?  What should I do, if anything?

Yes, a concern: Normal heart rate (HR) should be in the 70s. Are you taking a beta-blocker, which will lower your heart rate? (unfortunately, beta-blockers reduce glucose tolerance with prolonged use). I suggest 1-2 teaspoons of Morton's Lite Salt (230 mg sodium, 340 mg potassium per 1/4 tsp) and 400-500 mg magnesium each day. Walking (30 minutes or so each day) will normalize your BP and HR. ...Read more

Sometimes i can feel my heart beating a little off.. Is this something I should be worried about?

Probably not: Most people have an early or ectopic heart beat once in a while, and these are generally quite harmless. If you are concerned, or certainly if the irregular heart beat feeling is associated with dizziness, shortness of breath, or other symptoms - see your doctor where further evaluation may consist of an ecg, an overnight her cording of your heart beats, or other testing. ...Read more
